With a nine year waiting list and significant demand in the U.S., Europe and Japan, Eric Sahlin
is one of the great American luthiers who has achieved world-class status. Sahlin's guitars have been used by Scott Tennant, Andrew York, Ottmar Liebert (flamenco), Carsten Pedersen and others.
This instrument from 2004 is made from cypress for the back and sides, and cedar for the soundboard. It is a true flamenco with an authentic gypsy sound which is bright and punchy with great clarity and bite. Ottmar Liebert performs on this exact model. Workmanship is phenomenal - to truly appreciate the perfection of the craftsmanship, it almost requires viewing with a microscope! The elegant and minimalistic use of mother-of-pearl in the headstock, rosette and tie-block give the guitar a unique and beautiful aesthetic. Also includes the Vizcarra friction pegs which look like traditional wooden pegs but actually use a machine mechanism to stay in tune. With its excellent condition, sound, playability and rarity, this tremendous flamenco is simply a dream guitar.
